When the new episode was previewed two weeks ago I was giddy, I was all, “Hardware store? Yes!” There was such high potential for something really amazing and equally high potential for crash/burn … good times were inevitable. I was hoping, hard, for some amazing steampunk stuff, but instead we got copious amounts of Retro-futurism. So be it. Regardless, Jay’s look, I swoon! His outfit was amazing and utterly awesome, everything about it was great (especially the color choice), plus we’ve seen trash bags on the runway before and this look, I feel, has set the new standard. Amy’s look was great from the waist up, super architectural, interesting, I would love to see it in other colors and made with proper materials. Kind of reminds me of Art Deco in a way. Regardless, she’s becoming one of my favorites, espesh after she was unjustly critiqued last time. Jay’s accessory was also slammin’ … just saying.
As Florida natives, the girls and I root for “Tampa” (Ben*) over “Orlando” (Jesse) because Orlando is just so Orlando, but I must say this – Orlando did not deserve to go home when Emilio sent freaking Barbarella 2010 down the runway. Seriously Emilio, after the first few episodes I thought you had it in the bag … what happened? I think Holly needs to break up with you, because every week there’s some crazy snafu that revolves around her hilarious tallness … it shouldn’t be a surprise anymore. Was there an accessory? Was the bikini an accessory? I hope you recover, theoretical Emilio that I’m directing this toward for some reason, but if this didn’t get you thrown off all I can say is, I’ll see you at Bryant Park.
* Also, Ben is cuter … sorry Orlando … but I want to get a coffee with Ben.
